KARA winners showcasing artworks at Mohsen Gallery 

May 28, 2016

TEHRAN – Mohsen Gallery in Tehran is displaying works by the winners of the 2nd Kooshk Artist Residency Awards (KARA) in an exhibition, which opened to the public on Friday. 

Cartoons, sets of installation and video art by Sujin Lim from South Korea, Esmeralda Kosmatopoulos from Greece and Asaki Kan from Japan are on display at the exhibition. The artists have created the works during their stay in Tehran since May 1.

Adriana Salazar from Colombia and Zoya Siddiqui from Pakistan also won the Kooshk Artist Residency Awards, but Kan had to replace them when they failed to obtain a visa for Iran after the jury had picked them among the four preliminary winners. 

The program has been initiated to emphasize a balance between working in a personal space and working in collaboration with other artists and interacting with viewers and the environment.
